Thanks Mike, that helps a lot.
I'm a long time user of M$ products and I'm also quite familiar with e-mail
FWTW. OE, AFAIK, is also the last remaining M$ product that reads
newsgroups, like this one.
So really, what you are saying is when OL stores the messages it discards
the MIME message separators.
I was thinking what was being said was the headers at the start of the
messages, the Received, From, To, Subject, etc. lines; were somehow messed
Also, in my lexicon, discarding is not quite the same as foobaring. To me
foobaring implies altering or overwriting or mistranslating.
